Tayshia & Zac Reveal Where They Stand On The Biggest Twist Of The Bachelorette Finals

THE BACHELORETTE – “1613” Season Finale – After a shocking rose ceremony, Tayshia is excited to introduce the remaining bachelors to her family. Will the men win their families? Her father expresses concern that she may be making a huge mistake. When the day of the proposition comes, Tayshia is so overwhelmed with emotion that not even Chris Harrison can read her tears. Will Tayshia boldly step into the future she dreamed of, or will she be too scared to repeat her past? Find out more on “The Bachelorette”, TUESDAY, DEC. 22 (8: 00-10: 00 AM EST) on ABC. “(ABC / Craig Sjodin) TAYSHIA ADAMS, ZAC C.” I’m telling you, if it hadn’t been for my father the last time someone knocked on my door, I probably just wouldn’t have opened it, locked it and been done so, ”laughed 2020 Bachelorette star Tayshia Adams over a Zoom call to Refinery29, leaning lovingly on the shoulder of her winner, Zac Clark. On Tuesday, the Bachelorette finals aired the couple’s engagement after Adams split up with Ben Smith for the second time and eliminated Ivan Hall citing religious differences. “What if it were me?” Clark joked, forcing his fiancée to reconsider her position. “Okay, then I would have opened the door … I finished the door after a while,” Adams admitted. If you’ve watched the second half of The Bachelorette’s season 16, you’ve probably noticed the revolving door of surprise visitors that Adams had to entertain. Bennett Jordan, slow-moving Smith, and Adams’ own father Desmond Adams all stopped by to drop bombs on the Bachelorette. Ordinarily, the dad of a Bachelorette asking them not to make the “biggest mistake of their life” – as Desmond did in Tuesday night’s finale – would be the episode’s biggest shock. But for many who watched, they walked away from “Week 12” and still thought about the Faith. Adams’ early episode, which split with Hall over religion, was the ultimate shock of the approaching season. Viewers wondered what had happened during an obvious off-camera conversation. Hall has since told Bachelor Nation alum Caila Quinn via direct message that he was “not religious”. The finale indicated that Adams, a proud Christian, was far more effective with fiancé Clark on this subject – and everything else. Now, about three months after their engagement, the couple give us an important glimpse into the sensitive topic as they reveal the secrets of the Fantasy Suite and meditate on their most emotional conversation in the finale. Refinery29: Religion becomes a surprising key to the finale. How was the process for you talking about something so personal on camera? Tayshia Adams: “My faith is a big part of me. That’s how I grew up and that’s what I fall back on every day. It got me to this point in my life. Religion is a real topic that everyone should be talking about. I don’t think the big conversations I had with the other men are neglected. So of course I’m going to talk about religion. “How do you both connect as a couple with religion? It was clearly a big part of your decision making. Zac Clark: Look, for me I believe in God. I believe that there are no coincidences. I’m here for a reason, and Tayshia and I got into it. We share time together in prayer and all these things. I believe it is important to have this foundation because we will raise children together and do everything. We believe this is central to everything else. How did you handle your private conversations at the Fantasy Suites as this seemed to make your choice? Adams: “This is really the time when you can take a deep breath and let it all out and really talk about the things that could be a little embarrassing in front of the camera. Or something that you are actually scared of – something that you have experienced in this past that you don’t want the whole world to hear. Zac and I feel very comfortable when we talk about a topic. I don’t think we shy away from something that we think needs to be discussed. “Clark: I think there is a lot of energy in the fantasy suites of What Happens There? All this scandal. But the truth is when the cameras went away and the producers left nothing changed. That was really a big statement for me in our relationship, that we were being authentic no matter what. “Show this post on Instagram A post from Zac Clark (@zwclark) Tayshia. At the end of your last one-on-one interview with Zac, you expressed your fears of becoming a “housewife” five years from saying you “run the world.” What was it like to share that fear, which is very relatable? Adams : That was really in my heart. I was in a situation where I don’t speak my mind and what I feel. In the end, someone will be happy to hold my words to me and say, “No! You said you wanted to do that. “Yeah, but that’s what I meant.” People can twist your words. I feel like you have to be honest with yourself and your partner if you want a successful relationship Fear that I really had and again I feel like I can talk to Zac about anything. Just the confirmation he gave me was very comforting that I can continue to do this in a safe place. You definitely should say how you always feel. “Zac, how was it to support Tayshia at this very vulnerable moment? It feels like Tayshia saved sharing her greatest fears for you. Clark: “One of the things we were able to connect with was that the reality of my life and the reality of their life is that we are two very busy, energetic, passionate people. So really allow each other to have our lives, really [is a priority]whether it’s work or a weekend with the ladies. Only they support and know that when we are together we will have each other’s priority. “We joked on the show that we were going to build an empire. But there is a truth behind this that we will support one another in our dreams, goals and aspirations. “Adams: Oh no, no, no. I wasn’t kidding. I’m building an empire. “This interview has been edited and condensed. Do you like what you see? How about a little more R29 grade, right here?
